Just wanted to respond to this. Absolutely agree, transcoding, tag reading, resampling, RG, should not be handled by the command-line decoder. It should only output raw data. And we have perfectly fine replay gain support, that applies album gain when playing sequential tracks from an album, and track gain when not, as you'd expect.
